Justice, a Parisian dance production duo comprised of Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay, generated an international buzz with “D.A.N.C.E.,” a catchy single whose video and MP3 spread like wildfire across the Internet in summer 2007. Before “D.A.N.C.E.” became an online sensation, Justice had released a couple singles (“Never Be Alone,” “Waters of Nazareth”) on Ed Banger Records, a Parisian dance label whose roster also includes DJ Mehdi, Mr. Flash, and Uffie. “Never Be Alone” (aka “We Are Your Friends”) is particularly notable; based upon vocal samples from “Never Be Alone” by the British band Simian, the song was licensed in 2004 by International Deejay Gigolo Records, a German techno label helmed by DJ Hell, and consequently became popular in England and Germany, in addition to France. Augé and de Rosnay were prolific remixers as well, with high-profile credits including N.E.R.D.’s “She Wants to Move” (2004), Britney Spears’ “Me Against the Music” (2005), Death from Above 1979’s “Blood on Our Hands” (2005), Fatboy Slim’s “Don’t Let the Man” (2005), Daft Punk’s “Human After All” (2005), Soulwax’s “NY Excuse” (2005), Franz Ferdinand’s “The Fallen” (2006), and Mr. Oizo’s “Nazis” (2006).

Review Of “Audio Video Disco” By Justice

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Xavier de Rosnay described how comparisons have been incorrectly drawn between Justice’s second LP ‘Audio, Video, Disco’ and rock n roll music. And while the duo of de Rosnay (a.k.a. The China) and Gaspard Auge (a.k.a. The Moustache) is by no means a rock duo, there is clear essence of the organic and the analog on this record that is atypical of digitally produced music.
